Felt gorgeous and glam. Great long-sleeved dress for a formal event with coworkers!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress DEFINITELY runs small. I usually wear a 4 and I was squeezing into the 6. The length was perfect and I wore 2" heels. With the open back, I noticed that the side had some bunching because my back/bust didn't completely stretch out the material. I ended up doing a little bit of pinning at the bottom to bring it in and the bunching went away. The dress itself is beautiful and makes you feel gorgeous. Got tons of compliments all night. Wore copper colored heels and green antique earrings.

Beautiful dress that even worked for a traditional Indian/Pakistani style wedding!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was so in love with this dress that even though it wasn't available in my size (2R or 2P would have been much more appropriate) for the date I needed it, I got it anyway. Since it wasn't my size, it was much longer in length and a bit wider in the bust, but the sleeves, waist and hip fit like a glove! Which is saying something since I weigh like 89 pounds. To make the dress fit I just tied a ribbon around it to pull it in and I bunched up the side and held it so I could walk properly. The effect was actually quite wonderful, the ribbon looked pretty and the length of the dress made it look like a train, and since this was a wedding it was perfect! The lace detailing is gorgeous and the dress might look slightly darker than in the picture at night, but during the day it resembles the picture extremely accurately. The sunlight made the darker lace almost invisible and all you saw was this sheen of gold. If you get the 2L and aren't as "well endowed" up there are some people, I would seriously recommend a pushup bra or the ribbon trick, else the top will sag and since the dress is backless, the sag is extremely noticeable since there's nothing behind it to hold it up. With the dress I wore a long purple and gold dupatta (it's like a traditional Indian/Pakistani veil) and it looked pretty awesome with the dress. The nice thing about the dress is it's gorgeous in its own right, but it can handle a great amount of color or detail on anything else you're wearing with it. The dupatta and dress never overshadowed each other and complemented each other very nicely. Especially since the dress and dupatta only "met" the day before the wedding.

Stunning dress with great details! Sure to stand out in a crowd of "typical" gowns.
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was GREAT! My favorite part was the long sleeves and the open back. The great part about this dress is that it feels soooo light on! Also, it gives you a great silhouette and hugs your body in all the right places. My only gripe was that the dress hung a bit on the sides near the rib cage. I ordered a 4R and 6L (RTR did not have the 6R in stock at the time of purchase). The 4R would have fit PERFECTLY but it was a little too tight in the waist. Overall, the dress was fantastic and a sure show stopper!

Love it! Definitely leaves a lasting impression and makes you stand out! Absolutely gorgeous!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This gown will leave you feeling gorgeous and really stands out in a ball room full of your average and typically worn gowns. I received so many compliments throughout the night and on my photos. My husband and I attended the USMC ball and it was a perfect compliment to his dress blues. This was perfect for my athletic/hourglass body shape. I am 5'2" and wore 4 inch heels. The gown in a 4R was the perfect length and hit right at the floor with my heels. It runs very tight in the waist and is a natural waist. I normally wear a size 2, xs/s. I had to go to a 4R this time. I recommend ordering a size up as a second choice if you are going to an event. Exactly what I wanted and is even more breathtaking in person.

It fit true to size. If you are tall I would opt for the "long" versions of the dress. I ended up wearing flats.

This dress is elegant, feminine and definitely striking.
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Everything I noticed about this dress was summed up by other renters. The sleeves are narrow with very little give, but the effect is SO slimming. The material is very fragile and gets caught on everything - be careful. The regular length felt short to me. I like long dresses to be down to the floor. I'm 5'5 and wish I'd have rented the long version. The color in pictures is much more gold than in person. If you have a small bust, as I do, you'll need to fill out the top with some sort of adhesive bra, to avoid potential wardrobe malfunctions. Pair this dress with accessories of a different color, jewel tones, black, etc. Otherwise, you could look washed out. The dress is amazing and totally fulfills on the promise to stand out in a sea of dark formal dresses.

Loved this dress! And so did everyone at my prom! I got compliments all night!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit is very snug, particularly at the lower belly-- beware of this! Also I had to buy a Nubra (adhesive backless bra), but I'm glad I made that investment. The dress runs verrry long, and I had to buy 5-inch platforms to keep from stepping on the hem! I'd beware of jewlery or anything getting snagged on the dress-- It's not crazy delicate, but it is still a lacey-ish fabric! Don't let any of this deter you! It was all worth it!

Beautiful, classic dress
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Let me start off by saying that the dress is gorgeous and looks especially good in pictures! Some slight issues that I noticed though: 1. It is definitely shorter than a full-length dress should be. I'm 5'5" and wore 1.5 inch heels and it was barely touching my ankles. 2. Like someone pointed out before, it's not actually all gold. The lace is black underneath, which makes it look better in pictures than in reality. 3. On the right side, where the zipper zips up, the dress bunches up.

This dress is TINY - on the day weighed about 107lb, I knew from previous reviews that the dress ran small but the 2 regular has a waist band of 23-24 inches. So be warned. Having said that, it was just perfect for my NY City Hall wedding, I have never felt so beautiful.

Beautiful, elegant dress.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress has NO stretch at all. I usually wear size 2 and sometimes size 0. I rented a size 2L and 4L. They both fit, but I ended up wearing the 4L, to make room for a drink :) I'm between 5'6 -5'7 tall and went with the longer version of the dress. The longer is great if you're my hight and plan on wearing very high heels. It will still almost touch the floor. The dress seems to be more gold in the RTR photo. Actually it has thin black lace with golden details, so it's not that gold.

This dress is amazing!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to a formal cocktail party and absolutely loved it. I ordered an 8 and the 10 long and ended u wearing the 8. I was worried about the sleeves having no stretch (based on reviews), but once you pull them all the way up, they are fine. I think the dress should fit snugly and that is why I wore the 8. It was actually really comfortable and I didn't have to fuss with anything all night.

YOU NEED A BACKLESS NUDE LEOTARD/ GREAT STICK-ON BRA. I had to make a black backless leotard do at the last minute. The chest area was a bit too large, but the rest fit. I wore my usual size of 8. The arms were pretty tight.

Beautiful but small :(
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved this dress! All the reviews are correct and the dress definitely runs small, sadly the larger of my two sizes wasn't available so when the dress arrived I was already skeptical about it fitting. It didn't :( It all fit except for at the waistband, I couldn't zip it. The sleeves are also pretty tight but I think you'd get used to it and they'd loosen up while wearing it. The dress is so different and has a very flattering fit, if I could have got the 4L I would have absolutely worn the dress for my event.

Fabulous dress, but so tight in the waist there wasn't room to sit and eat comfortably.
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small

I loved this dress and the material was wonderful, but as others have said, the waistband is very unforgiving due to its complete lack of stretch. I would have worn it if I was at a standing event, but since I had to spend 8 hours at a formal dinner and music gala, I opted for a different dress that gave me more room to move around without having to suck in my stomach all the time!

Dress colour is very pretty. The size of waist/back is small
Size worn: 2L

The style and overall look of the dress is very special. I didn't like the sewing line down the middle of the skirt part. The waist/back runs small. I have a small waist, but I could barely breath. There were some rips in the arm lace, though not obvious without close inspection.

did not wear it (runs small)
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I didn't end up wearing this dress because the 8L had a last minute problem (based on reviews I sized up). Along with the replacement dress they did send me a 6R, which was too small. Admittedly, I did not make that much of an effort because I liked the replacement dress more than this one. The thing that was much too tight and too much of a struggle was the sleeves. I could have squeezed into it if I wanted but I didn't want to. THE PATTERN IS NOT NEARLY AS PRETTY AS THE PICTURE!!!! Also if you are 5'7" the regular length is much too short.

GORGEOUS Dress!!!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Stunning dress! I generally wear a 4/6 dress but due to the comments I ordered a 6L and 8L. I tried the 8L on and it fit perfectly, although VERY long. Note: I have never worn an 8 in pants, shirts or dresses, so this dress ran very small in my opinion. I am 5'7 and had to wear 5" heels to make it work. Multiple people over the evening told me I was the best dressed. Felt great! Will definetly use RTR again soon!

It fit true to size and was both classy and sexy with the open back. Definitely get long if you are 5'8'' or taller. I am 5'9'' and the long size was perfect with heels. Buy whatever size hits your mid-waste best. You NEED to buy a nubra with this dress or no bra at all - just FYI!

The 4L was too small, but I had tried on the 6L in showroom which was very flattering and elongating for my narrow body type. Dress runs very small/fitted in the arms/sleeve (I have small arms). The gown had a small but noticeable tear, so even if it had fit, I would not feel comfortable wearing it. Dress is absolutely stunning though and looks amazing in right size.
